Location

Beautiful, yet convenient location in Avon Wildlife Trust's 250-acre nature reserve, just 10 miles from Bristol and Bath. The reserve is bursting with bluebells in spring, rare wildflower meadows in summer and apple orchards in autumn. View directions here.

 

 

 

All profits from Folly Farm Centre are gift-aided to Avon Wildlife Trust,  to protect wildlife and inspire people about the value and benefits of nature. We have been working with schools since 1980. Last year alone, we engaged 10,000 children with nature.
